Theoretical concepts of cosmic ray particle acceleration at relativistic plasma flows – shocks and shear layers – are reviewed. We begin with a discussion of mildly relativistic shock waves. The role of oblique field configurations and field perturbations in forming the particle energy spectrum and changing the acceleration time scale is considered. Then… CONTINUE READING
